Walk­ing through town, where it’s always worth mak­ing a pic­ture … or two. Same in the old World’s Fair area, where the EXPO ’92 was hos­ted and where so many nice spots were left behind.

Real Alcaz­ar is one of the mir­acles of Span­ish his­tory, built for king Peter of Castile between 1350 and 1369.  It is the old­est roy­al palace in Europe still in use.

Bull­fight­ing is still a cul­tur­al high­light in this part of spain — wheth­er you like it or not. The Placa de Tor­os is worth vis­it­ing nev­er­the­less — even out­side the sea­son.

I found tons of beau­ti­ful sub­jects (bet­ter objects) which give an impres­sion of the ancient his­tory of this beau­ti­ful and amaz­ing town. As so many times before, I made two albums, one in col­our and one in black and white, as both…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home — Part 2

Vis­it­ing this beau­ti­ful old town in Al Andalus for the second time, this time we choose to come in Feb­ru­ary to escape the sum­mer heat with its approx. 40 °C.
